If you are going to use 4-6 # line the 1000 will be just fine.  If you are going larger like 10-12# then the 1000 won't hold enough line.

2500.  I have about 6 2500 size spinning reels.  They aren't that big.  You can use light line, like 6 or 8, but it will be fine with 12 or 14 as well.

Larger is always better on a spinning reel  8-) within reason

Go with the 2500

For the monster bass here in N. Illinois, I like the 8000. Just in case I hook into a 4lber.

With 65# braid no doubt in open water.........

you almost never see pros using spinning reels under a 3500 size.there is a reason for this.it's called less line issues.if you want a light spinning reel get a pflueger supreme xt.

I'm with Dodge Guy. The bigger the reel, the bigger the spool. The bigger the spool, the longer the casts and better drag system.

The weight difference between a 2500 and a 4000 is often only about an ounce.

Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. If weight is an issue, stay with the 2500.
